Tams begin title defense with win over Adamson
by Anton Roxas
from inboundpass.com

WITH 32.6 seconds left to play and Far Eastern University up by just two points, 67-65, RR Garcia milked the clock before driving and dishing the ball out to a wide open Paul Sanga on the right corner for three.

Dagger.

That basket extended the Tamaraw lead to five with 14.6 seconds in the game and proved to be the game-changer as it helped them hold off the Adamson University Falcons, 72-65 in their maiden game of the 2010 FilOil Flying V Tanduay First Five Invitational last Saturday, April 17, at the Arena in San Juan.

The sophomore Garcia had 10 big points in the final quarter to finish with a game-high 25 markers. FEU head coach Glen Capacio was pleased with his performance.

“Syempre, the leader of this team na. Wala na si Mark [Barroca]. So, he has to step up every game. I’m happy naman na maganda linalaro niya. Sana tuloy-tuloy hanggang UAAP,” said the fourth-year tactician.

The Tamaraws, champions of this preseason tournament a year ago, played without veterans Aldrech Ramos and JR Cawaling, who are still attending to their commitments with the National Developmental Team.

“One month lang siguro namin sila makakasama. So, yun ang problema namin kasi kailangan talaga namin mag-prepare for UAAP. Ang positive lang namin dito, makikita ko kung sino ang puwede sa rotation kasi mabibigyan sila ng break kasi wala si Aldrech and JR so yun nalang ang positive note doon. Pero sana pagpasok nila hindi mabigla yung mga ibang players ko at maka-adjust kaagad,” explained Capacio.

One of the stars in last year’s UAAP juniors tournament, Terrence Romeo, suited up for the seniors team of FEU. He saw action as the back-up point guard to veteran Jens Knuttel. The former Baby Tamaraw, who scored 82 points in a game last year, was held scoreless in today’s game.

“Sabi niya medyo yung jitters nandoon. Ninenerbyos. Sabi niya, ‘Coach kinakabahan ako.’ Kaya nga binibigyan ko siya ng chance na maka-recover. Makakatulong pa rin si Terrence. Buo pa rin ang loob ko sa kanya kasi alam kong may talent yung bata,” shared Capacio.

FEU got solid efforts from Pipo Nondou and Reil Cervantes, who scored 13 and 12 points, respectively. Anton Bringas, the brother of Arvie, had a decent performance, adding eight points.

“Maging consistent lang kami all throughout the FilOil. Offense at defense. Kasi ayoko na magkaroon kami ng mga bad habits. Kasi going to UAAP, kailangan prepared talaga kami,” said Capacio.

When asked whether he thinks that the Tamaraws will make it to the finals this year, Capacio had this to say. “Tignan nalang natin. Sana, sana.”

Alex Nuyles once again led Adamson in scoring with 16 points despite being tightly guarded by Sanga for majority of the game. Veteran big man Jan Colina was not his usual self today. He failed to register a single point in the contest. The Falcons fell to 1-1 in Group B play after defeating Mapua Institute of Technology in their first game.

The scores:

FEU 72 – Garcia 25, Noundou 13, Cervantes 12, Sanga 10, Bringas 8, Knuttel 2, Mendoza 2, Exciminiano 0, Romeo 0.

Adamson 65 – Nuyles 16, Alvarez 14, Camson 10, Galinato 6, Lozada 5, Stinette 4, Cabrera 3, Etrone 2, Cañada 2, Manyara 2, Importante 1, Colina 0.

Quarter scores: 18-16, 35-29, 51-46, 72-65.

Paul Lee is Paul Lee. He'll score his usual numbers whatever defense you throw at him. The best thing we can do is to hope that we catch him in his off game.

FEU 72 - UE 78 (goddammit!!!!) ;D

This is exactly why i hate others to tag FEU as "the team to beat this season" or "a strong team" or "can make it all the way" or "the team to watch out" or "the team with an intact core" etc...etc.....

I mean, Paul Lee practically defeated the Tams all by himself. Even without Espiritu and Llagas for crissakes, we cant seem to hold on to our 19 point lead. Chiongson must be a genius and his players, Acibar, Reyes, the comebacking Martinez (hey why bother to return ;D) were all very effective.

No excuse even without Ramos and Cawaling (yeah right, like Cawaling will make a huge impact). The problem is consistency.

Thank God for Mark Bringas. Hopefully will develop into a great under the basket player ala Gerard Jones. And that guy from the Juniors who scored 82 points against UPIS i believe. No, not Agovida. That guy should get more playing time. Who knows, he might score 82 points again, this time in the 1st quarter alone.

Cervantes, FEU rally past St. Benilde
by Josef Ramos


WITH the way Reil Cervantes is playing, Far Eastern University mentor Glenn Capacio can’t be blamed for expecting something big in the coming 73rd UAAP season.

The 6-foot-4 Bicolano poured in 16 of his game-high 27 points in the fourth quarter as his Tamaraws rallied past College of Saint Benilde, 75-71 in the 2010 FilOil Flying V Tanduay First Five Invitational Cup last May 7 at The Arena in San Juan City.

“It’s good to win and it’s challenging for my part to win against St. Benilde,” said Cervantes, whose two free throws and a dunk in the final two minutes gave FEU a 73-69 spread.

The CSB Blazers, who drew 25 points from Carlo Lastimosa, tried to knot the game twice in the last 50 seconds but couldn’t cash in, in the process dropping their second straight nail-biter after losing by two to JRU on Labor Day.

RR Garcia, who had 20 points against RP Under-18 team last Friday, piled up 13, including the last two free throws with 19.2 seconds left in the game, to guide the Tamaraws to back-to-back wins and a 3-1 win-loss slate. Cameroonian Pipo Noundou also chipped in with 11 points for FEU.

The Blazers were ahead, 21-17, at the end of the first period thanks to a balance scoring attack, but Garcia gave the Tamaraws some life in the second quarter with six points to tie the knot at halftime at 34-all.

“Reil is playing so well. I’m hoping he can bring his A-Game in the UAAP,” said Capacio. “It’s good the team did not go down in the fourth period especially in the last four minutes. The players played with a lot of heart.”

CSB actually outscored FEU in the third period, 22-16, to regain the lead, 56-50, at the start of payoff period. But Cervantes’ fourth period explosion allowed the Tamaraws to fend off the Blazers.

The scores:

FEU 75 – Cervantes 27, Garcia 13, Noundou 11, Mendoza 6, Bringas 5, Romeo 4, Cruz 4, Manalo 2, Sanga 2, Exciminiano 1.

CSB 71 – Lastimosa 25, de Guzman 13, Sinco 8, Mañalac 7, dela Paz 7, Tan 4, Argamino 3, McCoy 2, Sevilla 2.

Quarter scores: 17-21, 34-34, 50-56, 75-71.

FEU vs JRU

JRU wins fifth-straight victory at the expense of FEU
by Anton Roxas


“YUNG pagdating ni Joe sa amin, nabigyan kami ng presence inside the paint,” said JRU head coach Vergel Meneses.

Indeed, when you have a 6’8” behemoth blocking shots, grabbing rebounds and dunking with two hands like Joe Etame did today, he is truly a force to reckon with.

Jose Rizal University’s Cameroonian center has been making waves around the 2010 FilOil Flying V Tanduay First Five Pre-season Invitational Cup as of late, leading his team to five straight victories. Their latest victim, the league’s defending champion, Far Eastern University Tamaraws, who bowed down to the Heavy Bombers, 77-73 in their game last Wednesday, May 12, 2010 at the Arena in San Juan City.

Despite the loss, FEU came down fighting as they chopped down a nine point lead to one in just 69.9 seconds. The score was 74-73 after a Riel Cervantes putback with 37.1 seconds to play. JRU then called a timeout to extinguish the fire. That was also the last Tamaraw made basket in the ballgame.

“We were up by nine and we gave up five straight points. I told the boys na dapat ma-develop namin yung confidence na dapat play smart pagdating sa mga crucial. Buti yung composure ng mga bata nandun pa rin,” said Meneses after the game.

The Heavy Bombers went 3 out of 6 from the free-throw line to get the victory after a series of fouls by FEU. The Tamaraws had a good chance at tying the game or taking the lead with 8.4 seconds to play, but star rookie Terrence Romeo showed that he still has a lot to learn in the college game as he decided to take matters in his own hands, driving hard against the taller JRU defenders and missing on a wild lay-up instead of executing a better play.

Joe Etame had a game-high 21 points, his highest output in his four appearances so far in this pre-season tournament. However, coach Vergel Meneses still states that Etame is not 100%.

“Kasi ngayon hindi pa siya nakakasabay sa amin sa regular na takbuhan eh. Mostly puro plays lang. Kasi after ng game na to, for sure, may tubig na ulit yung knee niya. Given na yan, kumbaga, mangyayari ng mangyayari so ginagawa namin rini-relax nalang namin siya. We just have to deal with this kind of situation,” explained Meneses.

This win puts JRU at the top of the standings in Group B with a 5-1 win-loss card. FEU drops to three wins and two losses.

The scores:

JRU 77 – Etame 21, Matute 14, Njei 11, Lopez 6, Apinan 6, Almario 6, Kabigting 5, Bulangis 4, Badua 2, Montemayor 2.

FEU 73 – Cervantes 17, Garcia 15, Sanga 14, Romeo 7, Noundou 6, Cruz 5, Exciminiano 4, Bringas 3, Knuttel 2, Mendoza 0, Manalo 0.

Quarter scoring: 18-14, 35-34, 58-55, 77-73.

Cervantes, Tamaraws break Bulldogs’ hearts with come-from-behind win
by Anton Roxas
1,104 Views | 19 Comments

NATIONAL University had the game in their paws. They were guarding a 59-49 lead with 5:50 remaining in the game. Unfortunately for them, they couldn’t do it against Far Eastern University.

After all, the Tamaraws are still the defending champions.

The Morayta based school completed a comeback win over the Bulldogs, 62-61 last Saturday, May 22, 2010 at the Arena in San Juan City. It was a crucial win for FEU, as they try to advance to the quarterfinal round of the 2010 FilOil Flying V Tanduay First Five Pre-season Invitational Cup with a good seeding.

A loss to NU would have tied their records up at 3-3. Instead, FEU improved their record to 4 wins and 2 losses.

And, the win was as sweet as they come, especially for veteran center, Riel Cervantes.

A 10-2 run by the Tamaraws capped off by a tip-in by Carl Bryan Cruz, cut the ten-point Bulldog lead to two points, 61-59 with 41.2. Coming off an NU timeout, Jewel Ponferrada missed on a drive.

Timeout, FEU.

“Hindi ako makapaniwala na nanalo kami kasi they were leading the entire game. So, nandoon na kami, dumidikit na kami, last four minutes, we were down. So, napahanga ako sa mga bata kasi hindi sila bumitaw. Yung defense pa rin yung nagpanalo sa amin dito. Bago yung last shot ni Riel [Cervantes], madami kaming stops, kaya kami naka-recover,” said FEU head coach Glen Capacio.

With 15.3 seconds remaining on the game clock, RR Garcia drove to the right side, drawing attention from the NU defense. It seemed like RR was going to create a shot for himself, as he has done so many times in the past for FEU. Not this time, as he swung a pass to the left wing to wide open Riel Cervantes for three.

Game. Set. Match. FEU wins by one, 62-61.

“Paglabas ng timeout, alam ko na yung defense nila, concentrated kay RR [Garcia], sabi ko lang kay RR, wag lang niya pilitin, i-draw lang niya. Alam ko, mag-cocollapse sa kanya sa pick and roll. Mabuti at nakita niya si Riel,” explained Capacio.

Cervantes was on cloud nine after the game-winner, running with his arms spread out, smiling.

FEU is now at third place in Group B, behind Jose Rizal University (6-1) and San Sebastian College-Recoletos (5-1).

On the horizon, the return of the Tamaraws key players, JR Cawaling and Aldrech Ramos. The two veterans have not played in the tournament because of their commitment to the Smart Gilas National Developmental Team.

Coach Glen Capacio was asked after the game how he would deal with the return of his two stalwarts.

“Mahirap talaga ang adjustment dyan, sakit ang ulo ko dyan kasi, they have not been practicing for three months na. Mahirap na adjustment talaga. They’ll be back yata on the second week of June. Siguro, three weeks nalang yun to prepare for the UAAP. Malaking problema yan pero syempre, malaking tulong pa rin si Aldrech [Ramos] at JR [Cawaling],” said Capacio.

NU dropped to 2-4. The loss ended their inspiring two-game winning streak.

The scores:

FEU 62 – Garcia 21, Cervantes 12, Cruz 7, Exciminiano 6, Romeo 4, Knuttel 4, Mendoza 3, Noundou 2, Sanga 2, Foronda 1, Bringas 0.

NU 61 – Ponferrada 14, Mbe 12, Hermosisima 11, Terso 10, Khobuntin 5, Javillonar 2, Baloran 1, Ludovice 1, Singh 0.

Quarter scoring: 7-11, 28-29, 44-49, 62-61.

FEU dominates Mapúa to secure q’final spot
by Anton Roxas
(inboundpass.com)

COACHES just love it when their teams play good defense.

That is exactly what the Far Eastern University Tamaraws did against the Mapúa Institute of Technology Cardinals in their game last Friday, May 28, 2010 at the Arena in San Juan City. The Tamaraws limited the Cardinals to only 21 first half points and led by as many as 19 points on two occasions. This win secured a quarterfinal spot for the defending champions in the 2010 FilOil Flying V Tanduay First Five Invitational Cup.

“Ito yung pinaka-maganda namin na game dahil naging consistent kami all throughout the game. Hindi katulad nung sa UE, we played well sa first half tapos bumaba nung second half. Buti dito, buong game maganda ang linaro namin,” said FEU head coach Glen Capacio.

Cameroonian Pipo Noundou led all scorers with 20 points including a follow-up dunk off an RR Garcia lay-up miss in the fourth quarter. Garcia had 16 points while center Reil Cervantes and spark plug Chris Exciminiano contributed 12 points each.

The only stain on this masterful FEU victory that also saw them unveil an impressive running game was the ejection of Anton Bringas after the big man incurred two unsportsmanlike fouls. Bringas was ejected with 1:18 remaining in the third quarter after apparently kicking Raymark Cabrera while the two were entangled on the ground after falling down. He was charged with his first unsportsmanlike foul a little over a minute earlier after pushing the same Cabrera.

“Intense kasi yung bata eh. Pero sinabi niya sa akin pagkatapos ng game na, last na yun,” said Capacio with a laugh.

FEU, who is now at third place in Group B with a 5-2 record, will play San Sebastian College tomorrow, May 29. The Golden Stags are currently holding the second spot of Group B with a 5-1 card.

After the game, Glen Capacio was asked what his thoughts were regarding his team’s crucial game with SSC-R.

“Hangga’t maari susubukan naming manalo sa lahat ng games. Hindi puwede yung namimili ng teams. Ayoko isipin yung pagdating nila JR [Cawaling] kasi malaki yung adjustment. Pero itong group na ito, masaya ako sa samahan namin pati sa ensayo,” answered Capacio.

According to the fourth year tactician, JR Cawaling and Aldrech Ramos have not practiced with the team for almost 7 months but, he is still open to inserting them into the lineup if they are available later on in the tournament.

Mapúa’s two game winning streak was snapped as their record dropped to 2 wins and 5 losses. Jose Rizal University is still on top of the standing in Group B with a 6-1 record.

The scores:

FEU 86 – Noundou 20, Garcia 16, Cervantes 12, Exciminiano 12, Sanga 7, Bringas 6, Knuttel 5, Romeo 4, Cruz 2, Manalo 2, Mendoza 0, Foronda 0, Latonio 0, Guerrero 0.

Mapúa 72 – Mangahas 19, Paraala 9, Sarangay 8, Cornejo 7, Stevens 6, Banal 5, Acosta 5, Guillermo 5, Ranises 3, Cabrera 3, Ighalo 2, Cinco 0, Maniego 0.

Quarter scores: 19-11, 38-21, 61-43, 86-72.

Cervantes at it again as FEU nips Stags
by Celest Flores
(inboundpass.com)

REIL Cervantes is indeed the “Reil Deal.”

Cervantes saved the day yet again for Far Eastern University as his clutch jumper with 26.6 seconds helped knock off San Sebastian College-Recoletos in a pulsating affair, 79-73 in the 2010 FilOil Flying V Tanduay First Five Invitational Cup at the Arena in San Juan City last May 29.

The Tamaraws also benefited from their Bicol-born star in the previous possession, where he swished a tough fadeaway basket over San Sebastian’s Calvin Abueva with a little less than a minute remaining. That bucket was part of torrid endgame rally that helped them bust out of a six-point deficit in the final three minutes.

Cervantes, a fourth-year cager, knocked in 11 of his game-high 21 points in the payoff period to go along with seven rebounds and a steal.

The UAAP squad capitalized on center Ian Sanggalang’s defensive lapses, which saw him commit three straight fouls in just six seconds, leading to four easy points for FEU.

From there, the Glenn Capacio-mentored squad clamped down on the defensive end, forcing the reigning NCAA Champions to commit costly turnovers that led to easy baskets. FEU’s reliable guard RR Garcia gave the Tamaraws the lead for first time in the fourth quarter via a fastbreak getaway with 1:36 on the clock.

“It’s starts with me, so I always stay positive so I’m happy that despite being down by four to five points, they didn’t panic, they didn’t get lost and remained composed and that’s a big thing,” said Capacio after the game.

Garcia finished with 17 points in the win.

To make matters worse, San Sebastian fared miserably from the charity stripe as the boys from Recto made good on just two of six trips to the free-throw line in the last one and half minutes of the game. Pamboy Raymundo, who usually fairs well from the charity stripe, muffed two free throws that could have trimmed the deficit to two with 13.9 ticks to play.

Abueva, who provided offensive spark for the Stags with 12 markers, failed to lift up his team despite an emphatic breakaway slam off his own steal as his team wavered from then on. Ronald Pascual led the Stags with 16 points.

The Tamaraws, fresh from two other tight victories during the week, now boasts a 6-2 win-loss card, good for second place behind Jose Rizal University (6-1) in Group B. The Stags fell to third place in the group at 5-2.

The scores:

FEU 79 – Cervantes 21, Garcia 17, Noundou 8, Mendoza 7, Romeo 6, Knuttel 6, Exciminiano 4, Cruz 4, Sanga 4, Foronda 2.

San Sebastian 73 – Pascual 16, Abueva 12, Maconocido 10, Sangalang 8, Raymundo 8, Gorospe 7, E. Gatchalian 4, Semira 3, del Rio 3, Bulawan 2.

Quarter scores: 13-21, 42-35, 54-56, 79-73.

FEU needs to shore up its perimeter defense to try and contain UP hotshot Mike Silungan in their quarterfinal match this Wednesday. Getting into a gun fight with a team like UP would be most unwise. FEU has always played strong defense, and they will need it against UP.

FEU stops UP as Ramos and Cawaling return to lineup
by Anton Roxas


NOW, the real test begins.

The Far Eastern University Tamaraws continued their championship defense in the 2010 FilOil Flying V Tanduay First V Invitational Cup with the return of their two superstars, Aldrech Ramos and JR Cawaling in the quarterfinal round.

FEU defeated the University of the Philippines Fighting Maroons, 71-59 last Wednesday, June 9, 2010 at the Arena in San Juan City. With the win, the Morayta unit advanced to the semifinal round.

The two Smart Gilas National team players have not played at all for the Tamaraws this tournament.

FEU head coach Glen Capacio knew long before that it would be quite an adjustment to insert Ramos and Cawaling back in their lineup.

“Medyo nahihirapan pa yung mga boys sa adjustment kasi bagong pasok si JR and Aldrech. They have not practiced with us for 7 months kaya ang hirap talaga pag nasa loob. Minsan, hinihintay nila yung kilos ng dalawa kaya nahihirapan kami. Kaya noong nag-fourth quarter, nag-stick nalang ako sa dating ginagawa kasi gusto ko, dahan-dahan muna sila pumasok. Ayokong biglain,” said Capacio.

In the fourth quarter, shooter Paul Sanga took advantage of the UP zone and knocked down three three-point baskets to pull away from the Maroons. FEU led, 68-52 with 2:19 remaining after Pippo Noundou joined the party and nailed a three of his own.

“Ang maganda doon naka-adjust kami agad sa zone. May opening kami. Naka-iskor kami sa outside kaya nagpapasalamat ako na nag-zone sila,” explained Capacio.

Even though they are the tournament’s defending champions, the fourth-year head coach continued to emphasize that his team still has to adjust now that they are complete. He had always given the same answer when asked how his team would make that crucial adjustment.

“Sakit ulo. Malaking adjustment talaga yan sa coaching staff, sa players ko, kasi hindi to biro-biro. Hindi naman to pick-up game na papasok nalang sila bigla. Talagang proceso. Kaya ako, ang ginagawa ko dahan-dahan ko lang sila ipapasok sa rotation. Ayoko kasing mahirapan yung nandoon na sa team. Nandoon na yung chemistry. Maganda na yung teamwork. Ayoko na yung players yung mag-aadjust. Gusto ko si Aldrech at JR yung mag-aadjust,” stressed Capacio.

With the 73rd Season of the UAAP coming up on July 10, the Tamaraws are still hoping that they can finally attain their goal of winning a championship. However, the former professional player knows that there will always be obstacles that will prevent them from attaining their ultimate goal.

“Every year nalang may nangyayari sa paligid. Siguro kung walang nangyayari sa paligid baka puwede sigurong sabihin na mag-chchampion kami. Paulit-ulit nalang yung storya. Sana ang storya ngayong taon na ito mag-champion nalang kami kasi ang daming kaguluhan. Sa tingin ko. Mas madumi ang college basketball kaysa sa PBA ngayon. Mas malala,” said Capacio in a serious tone.

RR Garcia once again led the team in scoring with a game-high 18 points. Questions about the comparison between former Tamaraw, Mark Barroca and Garcia were still being raised after the game.

“Si Mark more on two-guard siya eh. Si RR, point. Si Mark kasi gusto niya i-take over yung game. Si RR kumukuha ng lakas sa team,” explained Capacio.

The Tamaraws advanced to the semi-final round which will begin on Friday, June 11, 2010. They will face the winner between the Ateneo de Manila Blue Eagles and the Adamson University Falcons quarter-final game today.

The scores:

FEU 71 – Garcia 18, Sanga 12, Cervantes 11, Noundou 9, Ramos 6, Exciminiano 5, Cawaling 3, Mendoza 3, Knuttel 2, Cruz 2, Romeo 0, Bringas 0.

UP 59 – Sison 11, Silungan 10, Co 10, Lopez 8, Padilla 6, Reyes Mi. 5, Manuel 4, Saret 3, Reyes Ma. 2, Maniego 0, Juruena 0, Gomez 0.

Quarter scoring: 14-10, 29-25, 46-42, 71-59.

FEU looking to create history, pips Adamson in OT
by inboundpass.com
By Larra Domingo

FAR EASTERN University clinched a ticket to the finals of 2010 FilOil Flying V Tanduay First Five Invitational Cup as they upended Adamson University in overtime, 79-75 last June 11 at the Arena in San Juan City.

Gritty is the term to describe the play of the Tamaraws as they treated the whole stadium to another pulsating affair. FEU marksman Paul Sanga could have broken the 63-all deadlock at the end of regulation but muffed an open attempt at the buzzer.

The victory wasn’t easy, though, as the Falcons actually led after 30 minutes, 50-44. Their tactics on defense, along with the play of guard Lester Alvarez and big man Mike Galinato, who was fielded in for the foul-plagued Jan Colina and Austin Manyara, helped their cause. The aggressive rebounding of Adamson forward William Stinnett kept the game close. But Cameroonian forward Pipo Noundou’s nine fourth quarter points powered the Tamaraw rally.

The reckless attempts by Sanga from beyond the arc almost did the Tams in. But his triple knotted the count at 57, and set the stage for an exciting finish.

In overtime, sophomore guard RR Garcia took over, scoring 10 of his game-high 22 points that more than cancelled out Alvarez’s nine-point fourth quarter effort.

After the game, FEU coach Glenn Capacio admitted that the team was still adjusting to the team’s new system. “As usual, ‘di ko parin masyadong narorotate sila JR [Cawaling] at si Aldrech [Ramos] kasi medyo nangangapa pa nga sila, pero come UAAP time alam ko kayang-kaya na nila,” stated by the proud Tamaraw coach.

Capacio, though, insisted that his focus remains with the further development of the team and their teamwork as they look to solidify their status as contenders. He highlighted his team’s rotation on both ends, which should be improved. And just like any other coach, he happily shared his dream, “Kung sakali man na magchampion, first time na may back-to-back, so ‘yun ang papangarapin namin,” clearly referring to his team’s goal of becoming the tournament’s first-ever back-to-back champion.

Big man Eric Camson led Adamson, touted to be an up-and-coming team in UAAP Season 73 play, with 15 points, while Alvarez tallied 14.

The scores:

FEU 75 – Garcia 22, Cervantes 21, Noundou 14, Sanga 8, Exciminiano 4, Mendoza 2, Cawaling 1, Romeo 1, Cruz 0, Knuttel 0, Bringas 0.

Adamson 69 – Camson 15, Alvarez 14, Nuyles 11, Galinato 9, Manyara 7, Cabrera 5, Lozada 4, Colina 2, Stinnett 2, Cañada 0, Importante 0.

Quarter scores: 17-11, 33-31, 44-50, 63-63, 75-69.

Tough luck for the Tamaraws. The last play should have been a "let go".

The refs should have let the players decide the outcome of the game and go into overtime.

Nevertheless, Congratulations is still in order. Runner-up finish is still something to be proud of.
